On Limmat Quai, not far from the Rudolf Brun-Brucke (bridge) you'll find Bianchi. A stylish restaurant specializing in very fresh pastas, and many types of fish from all over the world. They provided English menus, and our waitress spoke English as well. The service was friendly but professional. The fresh-shaved spring truffle pasta was outstanding, and the cod and turbot... More

I visit Bianchi since 2013 practically every week and it is simply fantastic. Yesterday I came back from a Guide Michelin restaurant tripp through Italy and therefore had a 1:1 comparison with some of the best places in Italy. Bianchi is on ths same level and esp the sole and the spaghetti vongole (bianco or rosso) stand alone.

They serve only fish but you find variety and uncomparable mastery and balance in the preparation - monkfish and mixed grill definitely to try. The very nice location, just in front of the river, and the high level service make the place a must go in Zurich.

The food was thoughtfully prepared and presented. We enjoyed our pasta and fish. Good and fresh but nothing special. The restaurant was rather warm which detracted from our experience. The wait staff was good but seemed a bit stretched.

This elegant Italian-style restaurant serves only pasta, fish, and seafood. The sea bass was excellent. A bit overpriced (even for Switzerland), and slow service. We sat by a nice window table, but the evening sun was annoying, and the management could not accommodate us by changing tables. We skipped the desserts and chose to walk around Altstadt before stopping at... More

We came here with friends for a very early dinner after an overnight flight and long day. Just found this spot by wandering...a wonderful 'accident'. Service was welcoming, leisurely and friendly, ambience was calm, extensive seafood menu. Just what we needed. We had a deliciously prepared meal, everything fresh and beautifully presented. Prices were on par with the type of... More

No restaurant is perfect all the time. I try to eat at a location three times to get a solid feel for the place. This was a one off. It was very good. It was so good and the service was so impressive that I'm compelled to share. An element feeling is all I describe the ambiance to, it's refined,... More
